A plethora of picks today, no huge fancies in there, but marginal value across the board.
First pick goes to Stirling at home, who are now getting the points on the board their play has merited over last few months. Elgin are one of the most unpredictable teams in the league though so that brings a bit of caution – but not enough to put us off and we take 6/4.
To complete a Tasty Treble, we go to the Championship. Arbroath can no longer be underestimated but Partick are now of the sides to follow in the league since they replaced that clown Caldwell with McCall. I’d hoped for better than 7/5 away, but it will still just about do. Lastly is Inverness away to Ayr. The jury is still our on Mark Kerrs reign at Ayr, and Inverness have a fine away record, I’d favour them as favourites today which makes the 19/10 price worth eating.
That’s your Tasty Treble folks!
To make up a 4 fold, we can add Queens Park at home. They will hope to get a bit of momentum going under new management and should see off Albion Rovers at Hampden Park.
Motherwell are the only other shorter priced pick and the rest are quite highly priced, but not to be sniffed at – they’re not all going to win, but a lot of good value in there. I’ve also thrown a rare correct score pick in there where we go for no goals in the absolute borefest that is St Johnstone v Kilmarnock. They will be handing out pillows with the match day tickets.
Pick of the outsiders are probably Hamilton at home, where we are getting better than 3/1. Not quite sure how, but they have picked up recently and Livingston are no great shakes away from home. Also after poor dear Brian Rice so unbelievably and courageously admitted to blowing the family savings on illegal bets during the week, surely his team of soldiers will rally around their incredibly brave and honourable commander as he battles this horrendous disease, so very bravely and courageously. Did I mention that he was very brave?
